    Second Time Lucky?

    I've been told it by two different guys.The first was my first boyfriend, I got annoyed because he only said it because we were in a fight and he thought it would cheer me up, he didn't love me, he just fancied me. We broke up shortly after, it was a 'mutual decision', we didn't...

    I Want to Know What Love Is.

    I have heard the words "I love you" many times in my life.  I've heard it from my parents, grandparents, nieces, nephews, lovers, and even men who simply wanted to spend a night in my panties.  I have doubted at times that all of these persons truly loved me...

    By so many ex-boyfriends.

    Family members who I really doubt. Honestly the only people I believe it was true from are: My boyfriend, mom, aunt, 4 cousins, & best friend.

    I made the mistake if falling

    for a man who turned out to be a narcisstic psychopath. I had to leave him after a year and a half. I am devastated and truly heartbroken.

    I Do Not Understand...

    maybe you can tell me.She told me that she would never tell me she loved me, unless she meant it.  I heard this for over a year and a half.  A couple of days after my birthday she told me she loved me.  All my walls came down and I loved her like I have never loved anyone else...

    Like Never Before

    It was the first time I ever knew they were true. Those words hit the center of my soul. I longed to hear them. All my life I longed to hear them with the fullness of my soul.  I begged for them to appear on the page. I felt my mouth salivate every day for weeks. I had starved...

    I Didn't Believe Them!

    During my twenty-two years of life, I've been told "I love you." a few times. But I never felt any warmth or love behind those words. Love is something you feel, not hear.

    These words were once my reason

    for waking up every morning when before I ever heard them I would just Lay there in bed waiting for dawn to come. Waiting for the night to come. And repeat all over again. These 3 little words, can mean so much or they can mean nothing. Thankfully they meant something to me and...

    My Love

    ve My Love   You know, there comes a time, when just saying I love you is held up in red tape and fodder. There must be more to say, to show and to feel. My Love, when I first laid eyes on you, I felt something far more than love, above friendship and even...

    So I have been " I love you" When I was with my

    girl friend in that relationship, that's what I heard it. I believed it, well I think. But don't settle for it, until they scream they love you, or when they say it for real. Now I am single. It's different. Can't feel love, not really interested in it. Fell in love, wasted it...

    But, now I'm not sure

    if she really meant it. If she had, she would have stuck it out with me for the next 11 months until her dad would let her go on dates with boys, right? I'm not sure what i know anymore.

    Just Words

    I have been told I love you by a number of men. I have never truly felt loved until now. Words are easily spoken, but feeling them is something totally different. Some men say I love you just to get what they want. I've been there many times before. It's hard to know if and...

    Sweet Whispers

    i have been told I love you so many times..before going to sleep and as I open my eyes. I may love to hear it but need more than that. Words are something, doing it is another thing. I need more than sweet whispers to my ears.

    I have been told "I love you," by many different kinds of people. There were those that would say it and I would often find myself questioning if they ever really did or said it because "it just seemed like the thing to do." I've had family members say after  they've...

    How Easy It Is to Say ...

    It's very easy to say "I love you" but it is potentially loaded with so much baggage that we often avoid saying it.  How refreshing it is to hear from a man who is not afraid to use those words, who knows that by admitting his love, he is not giving something of...

    And I've Told Others I Love Them.

    It's not always easy for me to say. It takes some time for me to feel it enough to say it. I don't like throwing it around. But I say it daily to my mom. I say it daily to my significant other. I say it daily to myself. And each one tells me the same.

    Life. The world. I see

    so much lies, and fakes. Once you see things, figure out where they come from, for what. You begins to see lies everywhere. They don't care about you. Your just like a cow to them. Used like cattle. And in the end, they have used you from the beginning. Free your self.
